Are you still seeing the problem?? I see the route changed in our routing
table 30 mins back and now we are seeing the best route via Verizon. I just
wanted to reach out and see if you still needed someone from Sprint to look
at it.

Hi all,

Any Sprint BGP admins on this list can offer any thoughts on why Sprint
connected networks are preferring my Sprint connection when they should be
preferring my Verizon?

I (Healthy Directions) am AS16387, two blocks and, being announced by sprint and Verizon, preferred to
Verizon(DS3) over Sprint 3MB.

Verizon BGP admins think everything is ok, have not heard back from BGP4 at

Any thoughts appreciated, off-list contact welcome.
